Ethical Considerations in the Implementation of Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI®)

About the speaker:

Cindy R. Lee, LCSW

MSW, Arizona State University 1999

BS, Psychology, Arizona State University 1996

Cindy specializes in providing counseling services for children, adolescents and adults.  In an effort to better serve families struggling with attachment issues, Cindy completed the Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development practitioner training program of the Trust-Based Relational Intervention Model (TBRI ®) developed by Dr. Karyn Purvis and Dr. David Cross in 2012. Since her completion of the TBRI ® training, Cindy has conducted numerous trainings to clinicians as well as foster parent groups and serves as a TBRI Mentor at TBRI® trainings.  In addition, Cindy is trained to administer the Adult Attachment Interview.  Cindy has also created a unique intervention designed for parents at-risk for their kids coming into foster care called Parenting for Positive Self-Worth.

Cindy is the Executive Director and Co-Founder of the HALO Project.  HALO (Healing, Attachment, Loving Outreach) is a 10-week intensive intervention program for children in foster care and/or children who have been adopted experiencing attachment or behavioral difficulties.   Due to the success of the HALO Project, Cindy was asked to collaborate with the Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development (KPICD) to create the TBRI Counselor’s Manual which will be available to TBRI Practitioners at the completion of the research.

In collaboration with Dr. Karyn Purvis & Dr. David Cross, Cindy has published a series of children books based upon the valuable lessons on TBRI ®, including Baby Owl Lost Her Whoo, It’s Tough to Be Gentle: A Dragon’s Tale, Doggie Doesn’t Know No and others.

Due to the need for individuals to have a step-by-step process of obtaining the “earned secure” attachment style, Cindy created an 8- week curriculum entitled Making Sense of Your Worth.  This curriculum is taught to counselors and TBRI® Practitioners world-wide.  Cindy also published a bible study entitled Anchored: A Bible Study on Self-Worth to help individuals to increase their self-worth.

In addition to TBRI, Cindy has received training in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TFCBT), Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), Seeking Safety, Trauma Recovery and Empowerment Model (TREM), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Theraplay®, Circle of Security ™, and Internal Family Systems (IFS.)  Cindy has experience treating a wide variety of issues including child abuse and neglect, trauma, anxiety, eating disorders, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Dissociative Identity Disorder, Narcissistic Personality Disorder and Reactive Attachment Disorder.

Cindy graduated with honors from Arizona State University with her Masters in Social Work in 1999.  Cindy is licensed by the Oklahoma State Board of Licensed Social Workers.
